The Panthères du Fleury Loiret Handball stuck together there, this Monday, July 18, between excitement and questioning about extra-sporting

It was recovery day, this Monday, July 18, for the Panthères de Fleury, gathered in the Albert-Auger roomwhere it was mainly a question of ball games and light muscular work.

With the exception of young internationals Cassidy Chambonnier and Norah Folituu, who benefits from a week off vacationthey were all there and hard at work, including Doungou Camarawhose rehabilitation is progressing well after his rupture of the cruciate ligaments of a knee which occurred in January.

If it continues its activities, Fleury will do so with a budget reduced by a quarter compared to last year, which will be around 1.2 million euros. This will place it a priori in the Top 4 of his division. Its workforce will revolve around nine professional players and eight young players from the training center . “On a the minimum number of prosauthorized to keep our training center”, specifies Anthony Tahar.
